that is threatening to devour a massive number of traditional retail jobs. america's holiday mall mania is as traditional as tinsel. consumers spending more than $500 billion this year will fuel more than 500,000 seasonal jobs. but the real frenzy is at home where online shopping is exploding under the relentless hand of one company -- amazon.com. what is amazon up to? >> well, the ambition, it seems is to take over the systems of consumption. >> reporter: barney jopson, reporter for the "financial times," has just written a book about amazon's extraordinary rise. >> amazon sales have been growing at about 20% or 30% a year. and this is phenomenal if you consider that the rest of the retail sector is growing, at best, at 5% a year. there is competition, but amazon is really the 800-pound gorilla. it's got a big head start on everyone else, and size generates some momentum of its own. >> reporter: how much momentum? so much that amazon had a hand in more than 20% of all online sales for 2011, according to forester research. so much that economic analysts say traditional brick and mortar

the scream heard around the world when reran for president. dean says let's face it, america, tacks need to go up for everyone. now, this might not be what you expect from someone like howard dean. it's certainly not the president's position or the position of most americans. another new poll out today shows that most people like the president's idea of only raising taxes on other people. specifically, the top 2%. the problem is according to the congressional research service, the math doesn't add up. that tax hike would only give $678 billion in additional revenue over ten years, now, remember, we're $16 trillion in the debt. now, if we go with howard dean's idea, that gets us $2.8 trillion or about 17% of our debt. adam davidson is the cofounder of planet money and he did the math. he wrote in "the new york times" a while ago, a set of numbers that has stuck with me ever since that increasing the middle class tax burden 8% would have a bigger impact than taxing millionaires at 100%. of course, once you tax millionaires at 100%, there's nothing else left to get them the next year. even
